Transmogrified from the term "transmogrification" has earlier been used by Bill Watterson in his Calvin & Hobbes comic series. It doesn't clearly known where the term comes from, however, the word itself appears to have a much older origin.

The term "transmogrification" is also seen in a TV series Red Dwarf, when the crew manage to turn one of Lister's curries in a curry monster and the term was used in a riff on a 1997 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (Ep. 817, The Horror of Party Beach).
